Death of a Shadow

Stuck in a dark limbo between life and death, a deceased solder collects shadows of the dying to buy back his own second chance at life so that he can be with the woman he loves. When he discovers that she’s in love with someone else, the temptation to use his other-worldly powers becomes impossible to resist. Nominated for an Oscar in 2013 for Best Live Action Short.
